    Grant, we were so sorry to hear of Judys passing. She was a great friend and we loved to to share a good cup of coffee with her and a good laugh! We are out of town and won’t be able to share the day with you! God Bless! We will be praying for you

  2. Please except my condolences. May you find comfort in knowing that your dear one is safe in the memory of God, who will remember every detail about her and bring her back again. John 5:28, 29 gives this assurance.

    I’m so sorry to hear of your mom’s passing.There will never be another Judy like her. How she wanted to lose weight at about 17 years old and all she did was drink coffee. Leo had a fit and made her start eating. There are so many fun memories I have of her. Our last meeting was for dinner in Owatonna. We visited and laughed and did very well with the hearing loss when it was just the 2 of us. She will be missed.

    With the snow storm coming on Wednesday I’m not sure I will make it out for her service. Many prayers for you and your family.

    I am so very sorry to hear about your mom. Oh the memories we had! I cherish all I learned about customer service and what a strong loving lady she was. She was a fabulous lady! Hugs and prayers to you.

  5. Our Son – Garrett – went to the daycare across the street from Judy’s home. The kids would stop over with Lisa and chat with Judy, or we would go with Garrett. Judy always had candy for the children and always made sure they went home with more than one piece, even if Mom said no. She will be miss because she was so kind and interested in all the children. Our prayers are with you today.

  6. Grant, I am sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. We had several cups of coffee and ice cream in LeSuer at the Dairy Queen. It was always a good time seeing her smile and sometimes hear her giggle. I first got to know your mother when she had the clothing store in Tracy and that was always fun to go in and look at the new clothes She will be missed.

  7. Jeanine, my sincere sympathy to you and Judy’s family on the passing of our dear friend. My memory of a young perky girl who loved life still brings memories of riding school bus, 4H softball, and kidding around with my best teen friend, her brother Charlie. Though she was six years my junior she was not intimidated by us. She was a feisty fun and honest young lady. It was my blessing having to know her.

    What can we say, Judy? Her laughter, jokes, sense of humor, and the real love of life. I’ll remember her at Dairy Queen. When she would make malts and try to listen to you, Grant at the same time. When we got are order…..it wasn’t the chocolate we ordered. But, we didn’t care !! We had a wonderful visit with her. Sending are love, support, and smpathy.
